Giants signed RHP Andrew Carignan to a minor league contract.
Carignan needed Tommy John surgery in mid-2012 and then underwent a procedure to repair labrum damage in his shoulder this past summer. "I’m just looking for an opportunity to get out there," Carignan told the Norwich Bulletin about his new deal with San Francisco. "It’s been a rough couple years with those injuries and the rehab. I was a free agent after last year so I was looking for an opportunity and the Giants came and gave me one." Thu, Dec 26, 2013 11:40:00 AM
